Bob Casale died on February 17th, from conditions that lead to heart failure according to Gerald Casale in a post on Facebook. Born July 14th, 1952 Bob was an original member of Devo. Says Gerald:“Bob Casale was there in the trenches with me from the beginning. He was my level-headed brother, a solid performer and talented audio engineer, always giving more than he got. He was excited about the possibility of Mark Mothersbaugh allowing Devo to play shows again.”

Robert Edward Casale Jr. aka Bob was the younger brother to Devo co-creator Gerald Casale. He played guitar, keyboards and bass guitar in the band, and was occasionally background singer in Devo. Trained as a medical radiation technologist, he left the job to join Devo. He was also part of Mutato Muzika, a music production company established in 1989 by Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh.

Rest in peace Bob.
